When I moved to Irvington in 2012, right after I left college, I hit the lowest point of my life emotionally, mentally, and financially. Getting back on my feet required the kind of love and support from friends, and sometimes strangers, that feels unique to this place. This city is where I figured out what kind of person I want to be.
I missed how easy it feels to find a little quiet outdoors here. I missed being able to participate in the lives of family members on a more consistent basis. I missed long drives to nowhere and short ones to a friend’s house.
I’m a big fan of The Legend restaurant in Irvington, and I’m looking for new places to carryout good food here. Devour Indy helped!
My husband Kelly and I love to dress a little nicer than usual, and go out for a slow romantic evening. That could look something like cocktails at a gorgeous bar like Plat 99, then dinner at a great restaurant, and a stroll around somewhere walkable with a great ice cream shop. Multiple locations with nowhere specific to be when we’re done.
So far, he’s just really loving having a yard! But we like to take him to Broad Ripple Park when it’s not too cold.
The ones I know off the top of my head are places like The Legend or Homespun [Modern Handmade], but there are so many more I still have to learn about.
I’d take them to a different park each day they were here.
I’ve been going to the Indiana State Fair since I was 13 years old, not every year, but enough of them, and I miss the Indiana State Fair.
